Images are a powerful means of conveying messages and it is important that institutional values such as valuing learning, celebrating diversity and promoting inclusiveness are communicated through the images used on the website.
In addition, images can significantly enhance your content:
- ensure you only use images that are relevant to the text on the page
- make sure that you limit the number of images on a page as they make the page slow to load for users
- ensure that the image dimensions are kept in proportion to the page content, normally no greater than 300 pixels. Full page width images should be used sparingly
- all images published on the web are subject to copyright. Ensure that you have obtained permission to publish an image on your page, including the written permission of any persons featured in the image (all images in the Central Image Library are copyright cleared).
Please note: Some images on the Digital Asset Library, which you may like to use to obtain pictures, have credits listed. If this is the case, make sure the credit is visible on the web page you use the image on.
